About

The Hulk Crying is an exploitable image macro meme using an image of the Hulk crying from Incredible Hulks issue 616. The meme first appeared online as early as June 2019 and was first popularized among Spanish speakers, becoming increasingly prevalent among English-speaking web users throughout the 2020s. The meme is often used to convey a sense of sadness over something you've grown out of, forgotten or otherwise moved on from.
